Reforestation and Tree Nursery Project
Thousands of trees have been planted at the site of Charlottetown's future wellfield as part of the City's reforestation and tree nursery project.
This 206 acre site will be reforested over time with trees and shrubs that are native to PEI. Reforestation projects such as this increase biodiversity and have a positive effect on groundwater retention and water quality.
The tree nursery, located on the same site, includes six native species of trees. The intent of the tree nursery is to provide a local source of native trees to be used in the City's reforestation projects or to be planted in City parks.
